Posted on

Amazon has a list of products called "Movers and Shakers," which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently ~trending~.

Here are some of the coolest and most useful things found on the list this week:

1. A soft and flowy dress to wear with your fave scarf and boots. Voila, a perfect fall outfit with minimal effort.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Tried this dress on with leggings, riding boots, a long open cardigan, a plaid blanket scarf, and a stretch belt to bring it all together. Beautiful! Can't wait to wear this outfit when the weather gets cooler. This dress is so versatile." —Angela

Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 19 colors; also available in a short-sleeve version)

2. A potent spray that'll instantly get rid of any unpleasant odors left behind by your furry friends.

amazon.com

Promising review: "It actually works! I was skeptical at first, but I'm honestly impressed. It doesn't mask the odor — it truly eliminates it. I had my parents over to visit, and my dad hates the smell of cat litter. I brought him into the room after about an hour of spraying it and asked if he smelled anything, and he said he didn't. He was shocked! I definitely recommend!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $13.49

3. A pair of stove counter gap covers, because the amount of food that falls into that tiny crevice is astonishing (and cleaning it is a nightmare).

amazon.com

Promising review: "These have saved us from a lot of nasty spills down the side of the stove because our gaps are uneven and wide enough to be problematic. They clean up very well and are not at all impacted by the high heat from the stove-top or oven. They were a gift for one of us, but the entire family of five cooks appreciates these gap covers." —Caren

Price: two-pack for $12.97 (available in three colors)

4. A pack of moldable glue that can magically fix anything from a frayed iPhone charging cable to a broken zipper pull.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Amazeballs. I used a pack of the white to repair a MacBook Pro power cable. It did the trick excellently. I trimmed the jagged parts of the tear in the cable's outer layer, used a light detergent to make sure the area was clean, then (after drying) applied the Sugru, and it's held up like a champ. This stuff is great." —R.C.

Price: eight-pack for $22 (available in five colors)

5. A tablet for keeping your washer clean and free of mildew-y smells. It works better than bleach because it'll last through several cycles, ensuring all the gunk is washed away.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I have been using bleach to clean my machine for some time, but decided to give this a try a few months ago. My very first clean with Affresh left me surprised and delighted, for not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes thanks to a build-up of mold I didn't even know about. Every month now, I toss a tablet into the drum and let it work its magic. My machine is cleaner than ever, and my clothes always smell wonderfully fresh. I highly recommend this to everyone." —Kelli Crawford

Price: three-pack for $6.99

6. A long-sleeve tee with a simple silhouette and a cool color-block design. Pair it with jeans and call it day.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Beautiful shirt! I got this shirt in the mail yesterday, wore it today, and I've already gotten several compliments on it. I bought the maroon shirt, and I love the color. It's perfect for fall! The size seems pretty true to size. The length allows you to wear it with leggings or jeans. The fabric is lightweight and comfortable." —Billie J. Wirthlin

Price: $14.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and five colors).

7. A bag of non-scented Epsom salt for taking a long, relaxing soak when your muscles are tired and sore.

amazon.com

You can always add a few drops of essential oils to your bath if you prefer to have a scent.

Promising review: "Epsom salts have long been touted as a wonderful healing agent when related to muscle aches and sprains. I have a spa tub so I can't use fancy smelly stuff, but I can use Epsom salts, and they do wonders on sore muscles. I will always recommend them when you know you are going to feel pain the next day after a workout." —Sweetestjoy

Price: $12.99

8. A reusable straining bag so you can make nut milk, juice, cold brew coffee, tofu, and even cheese from scratch.

amazon.com

Promising review: "The material is sturdy, and the bag holds plenty. It doesn't stain, and it's easy to clean. I've used it to make almond milk and even a couple different fruit juices, and no pulp gets through. I've thought about making some cheese at some point. It's so versatile!" —Aaron J

Price: $8.99

9. A non-stick splatter guard to stop grease and sauces from flying onto your countertop (which you literally just scrubbed yesterday).

amazon.com

Promising review: "I love this product. I like how you can move the panels to center around the pan on the stove to any size you are using. Very easy clean-up and handily folds into one panel for storage. I have bought splatter screens in the past, and it never worked at keeping oil or hot sauces from getting onto my stove and countertop. I highly recommend this item and am thankful I finally found something that actually works." —JO MO

Price: $4.82

10. A bumper-style Apple Watch protector that'll prevent any accidental scratches or dents.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I wear it every day; it protects my watch from side bumps and bruises and still looks brand new. The metallic sheen is just as beautiful as the day I got it (several months ago) and shows no sign of wear. I'm surprised at how well it works and looks after all this time. It isn't easy to remove, so if you want to change up your look regularly, get a snap-on cover. I wanted it for protection — I'm a paramedic — and it has definitely served its purpose." —J. Fitts

Price: $7.90+ (available in three colors and two models)

11. A best-selling book packed with helpful tips on how to better communicate with kids. This could come in handy whether you're a parent, a guardian, or a babysitter.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This book is excellent. It breaks communication down to its core. This book can be applied not only to children but to communication and conversation with all people. I bought this book to help me become a better parent, but it has helped me to become a better conversationalist in general and to really listen and hear what people are saying. If you take this book to heart, it can really help you be a better parent." —Sara

Price: $9.69

12. A bottle of leather cleaner to restore a dirty car seat, armchair, or handbag to a spotless state.

amazon.com, amazon.com

This leather cleaner comes with a microfiber towel!

Promising review: "I really love this cleaner. It doesn't leave a greasy film. After cleaning the interior of the car, it looked brand new. The back of the passenger seat was a mess from my grandson kicking it while in his car seat. The TriNova cleaner removed the marks easily." —Deb

Price: $15.98

13. A cable-knit beanie for keeping your head and ears cozy on a chilly day. Beanie season is the best season, IMO.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Great hat made of a soft material — not scratchy at all! A little bit of slouch gives it a more modern look. Kept my head warm but not sweaty." —Nicole Dale

Price: $7.95 (available in 10 colors)

14. A pair of stretchy yoga pants that won't budge through an intense workout session.

amazon.com, amazon.com

There's a hidden pocket in the waist to stash small necessities such as your phone, keys, a credit card, or a little change.

Promising review: "These pants deliver it ALL. I have them in four colors and not one is even a little transparent in the bum when bending over. They are very conforming and do not ride up or stretch out during use. They're very cool and breathable in hot environments and keep you surprisingly warm when it's cold out. The waist sits high enough that you don't have to worry about them rolling down or sinking too low during heavy activity. After months of daily active use, there is absolutely NO sign of pilling, tearing, or unraveling in the thigh area, which to me is unheard of! They cost more than a basic, junky pair from a department store, but every penny is worth it." —tCBN

Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 18 colors)

15. A take-home game of Escape the Room perfect for people who enjoy the apps or real-life versions.

amazon.com

This game is designed to be played by three to eight people.

Promising review: "My husband and I played this with just the two of us, and it took us about an hour to complete. The puzzles are very well executed and fun. There were a couple times we were stumped for a couple minutes but in the end, we made it through without using any hints. Afterwards, we used the game's website (provided in the instructions from the box) to repackage everything nicely so we can give it to a friend. This game is not repeatable but makes for a great date night in." —C. Patty

Price: $21.99

16. A baby bath support to keep your little one in place and comfy in the tub.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I am so happy with this baby bath. I love how easy it is to use. The rubber material that the baby lays on is super soft and keeps the baby in place — no sliding down. My baby girl loves bath time. If you fill the bath to waist level, your baby stays nice and warm during bath time while you wash her and pour warm water on her. I also love that when bath time is over, I can do a quick rinse of the baby bath and just hang it up to dry. No deep crevices where mold can grow. Very clean, easy, and baby loves it! Would definitely recommend it!" —Anna

Price: $14.39+ (available in three colors)

17. A gentle strawberry face mask that'll leave your skin silky smooth and smells absolutely delicious.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I am really enjoying this mask. I use this once a week. I leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse off to some of the softest skin EVER. Spend some time massaging your face when applying so that the seeds can exfoliate your skin. I use it at night. This is great for people with sensitive skin as it is gentle." —Maureen Shea

Price: $11.99+ (available in two sizes)

18. A de-shedding tool for your doggo appropriately named "Furminator." It's gentle on your pup's coat but very effective.

amazon.com, amazon.com

This brush can also be used on cats and rabbits!

Promising review: "It opens a portal to a dimension of infinite fur. My dog doesn't erupt into poofs of hairs when petted, yet hairs would mysteriously be all over the house. In a few swipes, this thing finds globs and globs of undercoat. After a few weeks of use, I'm definitely seeing a reduction in hairs around the house." —Kitty

Price: $24.79 (available in five sizes)

19. A set of colored pencils so you can finally get started on those awesome coloring books you've been saving. These are very pigmented and easy to blend!

amazon.com

Promising review: "I love to color for relaxation. These pencils are the best. Creamy, smooth application, and sharpen easily without the lead breaking off. The colors are ultra-amazing, vibrant, and luscious. I have given all my old colored pencils away and will be forever dedicated to these premier pencils in the colors that I love. They blend together very well." —Katz

Price: 72-pack for $24

20. A comfy and stylish knit dress (with pockets!!) that'll help you get ready in less than 10 minutes in the morning.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I have gotten so many compliments on this dress! I thought the fabric was going to be very thin, but it is seriously perfect. Not too thick, not too thin. Great quality for the price, I will definitely be getting more colors!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $9.99+ (available in 10 colors).
